    place a shortcut to IE6 on your desktop, right-click and select properties then under TARGET add the switch " -nohome ". Example: C:\Programme\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" -nohome
    after that IE starts very fast. Have fun!

    it's even easier to open IE, go to tools-internet options. on the general tab there just click on blank page as homepage. :D

    yep, the blank page still has to be loaded. So if you want to shave those microseconds off -nohome is faster :) . also should work with all widows os as i used this with 98

    Putting -nohome in the target line prevents you from going to Tools -> Internet Options.

    Well at least it did for me...

    well set your homepage to about:blank and your shortcut to open with the -nohome option. You will only have this problem right when you start the browser. So if you want to go tools->options right after starting the browser, just hit home and then you can do it. If you go to tools-> options frequently right after opening the browser, you might want to remove the -nohome option.
